Examine the 8x10" negatives with a magnifying glass in the shadows. Is it still murky? Or is it thin with small black specks? If this is the case, the explanation is an optical effect. Better optics in the 8x10" situation. And the better optics will result in a poor image as a result of the optical quality of our eyes. The solution is then to develop in such a way that the detailed information disappears. Or decrease the exposure to get rid of the details in the shadow. However, in this case, you are not using the advantage of 8x10".
